Community march on the anniversary of SB 1070

STATE CAPITOL, Phoenix – U.S. Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Arizona State Senator Steve Gallardo, Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox and community leaders are coordinating a community breakfast and march on the one year anniversary of the signing of SB 1070 this Saturday, April 23.

The community breakfast will begin at 8 a.m. at El Portal Restaurant at 117 West Grant Street, Phoenix, Ariz.

At 10 a.m., marchers will gather at César Chávez Plaza at 200 West Jefferson Street. The march to the State Capitol will begin at 10:45 a.m.

“SB 1070 has been a black eye on Arizona for the past year,” said Sen. Steve Gallardo. “SB 1070 continues to drag down Arizona’s economy in addition to the hundreds of millions already lost in tourism dollars. I am calling on Gov. Brewer and the Republican leadership to do what is right for Arizona’s economy and repeal this unconstitutional legislation to remove Arizona from the costly legal battle and the negative light that came with it.”
